Mesdames et messieurs, bienvenue au carnaval de l'aléatoire.
SEE THIS BUTTON HERE? If you value anything I've got to say, and would like to buy a girl a drink, or contribute to my tattoo fund:
Geek-girl, poet, political miscreant, liberal activist, Goddess of Eclectica, spoken-word performer.
I love movies, music, books, and Doctor Who. I mean - I REALLY LOVE DOCTOR WHO.
Things you are likely to find here: Rants, poetry, pretty pretty pictures, DOCTOR WHO, SHERLOCK, reviews, opinions that you may or may not agree with, thinky thoughts on the constitution and pretty much anything else that strikes my fancy.
Last year, French publishers were successful in fixing the prices for ebooks as well; they (as publishers), not the sellers, determine the price of the ebooks, keeping printed book sales from dropping as dramatically as they have in the United States.
Along with these two laws set in place, French bookstore owners also have the advantage of being able to apply to government-financed institutions for grants and interest-free loans. A concept that is not only unlikely in the United States but which would outrage millions of people.
Do the French have more reverence for the printed word than Americans?
